  • This has been a big hit with the kids at other schools in the district.

Round Robin

  • The question was raised tonight as to why we have our Readathon in the Fall rather than during I Love To Read Month. The Readathon used to be held during I Love To Read Month, but was moved to the Fall when the PTC decided to use it as a fundraiser in place of the Chip Shoppe. It certainly could be moved back to I Love To Read Month in the future. This is a good topic to revisit as a group.
  • Butter Braid Fundraiser will be starting soon

Topics Mentioned for Future Meeting

  • Student Beneift Dollars discussion
  • In 2020, a new school is starting – It was asked if the already existing PTCs would
